The Springfield Daily Citizen proffered a podcast I did listen to because I already know the answer.
“Book Bans” today just means not putting sexual material in the elementary school library. You want to get around it? Order it on Amazon.
When a community objects to government subsidy and encouragement of objectionable material, that’s not a ban. Just because something is not provided by the government does not mean it’s banned. Unless one is actively arguing for “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State.”
I am tired of how some political actors stretch definitions to conflate something objectionable with something wrong.
